Original Press Release at PRWeb: APS Assists ICAO Airline Upset Training Enter Asia
Aviation Performance Solutions LLC (APS) is assisting the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) in a global effort to educate airlines and aviation authorities on the effective implementation of the ICAO Manual on Aeroplane Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) developed to comprehensively address Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I) – commercial aviation’s leading cause of fatal accidents . This week’s seminars, part of an ongoing worldwide initiative, are being delivered in South Korea and Singapore.
Mesa, Arizona (PRWeb) May 19, 2016 – Aviation Performance Solutions LLC (APS), a global flight training organization specializing in Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) and Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I) solutions, announced today its continued collaboration with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) on two educational events in a series of international public air safety seminars dedicated to providing clear guidance to national aviation authorities around the world on the implementation of the ICAO Manual on Aeroplane Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT).
Effectively delivered ICAO-compliant UPRT reduces the risk of Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I), the number one cause of fatalities in commercial aviation worldwide over the past 10 years. Upset Prevention and Recovery training mitigates the threat of LOC-I through pilot education and practical skill development; however, proper training of UPRT instructors and ICAO-compliant delivery of the training are essential to maximize the benefit of UPRT and avoid possible negative training.
APS assisted in delivering ICAO UPRT messaging in Nairobi, Kenya in mid-July of 2015 and in Istanbul, Turkey in August. This week in both South Korea and Singapore, APS is contributing to the delivery of a series of educational presentations including advanced simulator UPRT demonstrations to airlines, regulators, and global training experts concerning the recently published ICAO Manual on Aeroplane UPRT. “APS is honored to be an on-going expert resource in assisting ICAO in bringing modernized UPRT to airlines, regional operators and regulatory agencies around the world”, said Paul BJ Ransbury, the President of Aviation Performance Solutions. “The aviation industry is becoming acutely aware of the critical need for industry-vetted and standardized upset prevention and recovery training to protect the traveling public. UPRT implementation in compliance with proven methods is essential to global air safety and is powerfully enabled by ICAO’s breakthrough Manual on Aeroplane UPRT in combination with IATA UPRT best practices”.
